All southbound lanes of the 405 Freeway were reopened Monday after an early-morning crash killed one person near the Sunset Boulevard exit, authorities said.

The southbound lanes were closed for almost five hours after a call came in at 3:36 a.m. about a multi-vehicle traffic collision at Sunset Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol. The CHP and Los Angeles city firefighters responded to the call. One person was pronounced dead at the scene. A coroner was at the scene early Monday.

A SigAlert was issued around 4 a.m. before it was called off about 8:30 a.m. and all lanes were reopened, according to the CHP.


If we said when you woke up tomorrow that the 10, the 91, the 118 freeways and the East L.A. Interchange had vanished, would you dare to look directly at the brave new world?
